Re[2]: Fireside song

To which the excellent Shinawassee remarks:

>rape, plunder and then burn.
     Yeah, c'mon Eogan.  You don't get a lot of loot if you burn the place 
     *first*.  Poetic license is one thing, but c'mon.
     Although you could justify it by claiming that it was your one 
     intentional mistake in the poem (a spjall, like all good Viking poetry 
     has) but I don't know. That's a pretty big one.
     Although it could start a great chorus of The Loot Song....
